    Quick kick panel imaging help?

    Hi,
    I am gonna start on my kick panels tonight.
    I've read through Gauntlet's tech article, and I understand an easy way to get good imaging is to use a laser pointer.

    My question is, when I line them up with the headrests, do I point them at the opposite headrest, or the adjacent one? What I mean is, do I point the passenger side kicks at the passenger side headrest? Or the driver's headrest? And the same for the driver's side kicks; driver's side headrest or passenger's?

    BTW, it's in a 4 door Honda Accord, if that'll matter any.


    Thanks guys.

    I had both of them point to my headrest.

    Thanks, I do think I'll just try each of them out first.

    You're the one listening to your music ... point them at your head

    It helps to throw an 'X' made out of masking tape to find the center, if you're really picky.
